Renaissance Place (Accelerated Reader) currently has 139,286 quizzes available. The quizzes are grouped in the following categories: Lower Grade =LG, Middle Grade=MG, Middle Grade + = MG+, and Upper Grade=UG.
As a Catholic school, we adhere to our Mission Statement when choosing books for students. Please remember that because a quiz is available it does not mean it follows our Mission Statement. Thank you for assisting your child when choosing a book at a public library or bookstore. Remember to consider the interest level of a book when making your selections.
What is Interest Level (IL)?
Interest level is based on the content of a book and indicates age group appropriateness. Interest level designations reflect the judgment of the book's publisher and the professionals at Renaissance Learning. We group content appropriateness into four categories:
LG = Lower Grades (K-3);
MG = Middle Grades (4-8);
MG+ = Middle Grades Plus (6 and up);
and UG = Upper Grades (9-12).
The final decision as to whether the content of a specific book is appropriate for a particular student is the responsibility of school librarians, teachers, and parents.
